Syria admits possessing chemical weapons

July 23rd, 2012 · 6 Comments · Politics

The Syrian Foreign Ministry has admitted what many have believed for years – it does possess chemical weapons. But it says it will only use them if there is foreign intervention.

There seem to be mixed messages, though. Here, Jihad Makdissi, says that they will use chemical weapons, “if they exist”. But then later, he says that they are kept under lock and key by the Syrian Arab Army.

    Correct, Syria is a sovereign state; not as the insurgents a bunch of criminals seeking to destroy it with the help of Saudis and the Qataris.
    We shall see when their turn comes up

    This is the last sign of failure and bankruptcy the islamist insurgents are facing with the syrian army.

    Syria is a multi religion liberal state; no one wants any islamist regime to come to power.

    See the chaos that happened in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Libya….
    No one wants that in Syria; against the nose of all powers backing them. If these are so happy with them; why don’t let them extend their ideas in their own countries. Just see the faces, beards of these phenomenons and you will understand why most of the Syrian people are backing up Assad.
    George Sabra the sole christian spokesman of the so called National Syrian Traitors Council(NSTC) is a communist and a converted islamist…did you know that ???

    Intervening God in social and political matters, is a crime by it self…So, their “Allah Akbar” slogan is a blasphemy to all believes, and a cover up to their crimes .
    The Syrian Army and state Institutions are very strong and organized and numbered by millions of citizens. Therefore, the small number of dissidents seeking trying to get back with the country 1400 years backwards with their filthy unrealistic ideas, will not change anything on the ground; propagating only destruction and failure.

    Better for Qataris and Saudis to seek a peaceful settlement to the matter by holding back the insurgents and pushing them to a peaceful resolution. Otherwise, God knows what will happen to them next…Just wait and see…
    Syria is not Libya, Tunisia , Yemen or Egypt to play with as they wish..Haven’t they learned that over 17 month ????
    Anyone, trying to mingle with it will have his fingers burned first…So beware…

    This is first time in modern history that such a dirty plot is designed and executed against a free country. Anyhow, the lesson learned will the of the main History topics to teach for future generations, showing how a small country as Syria is able to stand up with such an attack.

    Do not think that the Russians and the Chinese are dummies…they know well what they are doing

    Today…BBC arabic has broadcasted on air an interview made by Paul Woods about the insurgents in the city of Zabadani near Damascus.

    The chief insurgent declared clearly that the insurgent groups are NOT fighting for freedom but it is simply a Jihad for Allah….

    This a flagrant example of these Islamists propagating destruction and chaos in the country. Thanks God, the regular Army is their to teach them a lesson they will forget.

    If that what the US, French, British and others Arabists want..We shall send these bearded jihadists as a gift to their countries to play their dirty games in their own countries…But NOT in Syria
